Taber gets more than its fair share of sunshine. On any given day, the wide blue sky dominates the expansive prairie landscape. The westerly breezes that travel over the Rocky Mountains bring Chinook winds that can suddenly warm even the chilliest winter day. Despite its miles and miles of rolling farmland, Taber isn't all just dry prairie. We get just enough moisture to green the Oldman River valley and to enrich the fertile soil that drives our agriculture and food processing industries.
Based on 2015 verified Expedia user reviews, Taber was ranked number 6 on Expedia's list of Friendliest Communities in Canada! As part of the Canadian Badlands, Taber has undertaken a Tourism Visioning Project along with the Municipal District of Taber and the Town of Vauxhall in an effort to improve the visitor experience to the community. Whether you're a leisure-seeker, nature lover, history buff or outdoor festival enthusiast, there's something for everyone in this vibrant community.
In September 2018, Taber was the proud host of the Coors Banquet One Horse Town concert and the event was a huge success! Dallas Smith, Tim Hicks and Kira Isabella came to Taber and nearly 4000 people came to Confederation Park in downtown Taber for the amazing outdoor show.
